Peruvian street food restaurant Butifarra to open in Soho

Related tags Street food restaurant Restaurant

A new street food restaurant is set to bring an 'authentic' taste of Peru to Soho later this year.

Butifarra will serve sandwiches, ceviche and a new style of sushi to eat-in and take-away when it opens this summer.

It is the brainchild of entrepreneur Ali Malik, who has named the restaurant after street food snack Butifarra, a bread roll with slow-cooked meat and salsa.

He will work closely with Peruvian supplier Andes Export to source authentic produce such as maiz morado (purple corn) and amarillo (yellow chilli) for the venue.

While further menu details are scarce for now, side dishes will include a vegan Taku Taku rice dish and Peru’s famous Alfajor cookies, described as ‘biscuity’ dulce de leche macarons.

Own-brand coffee and freshly made juices will sit on the drinks menu alongside more unusual offerings like the Chichi Morada (a purple fruit juice made with corn).

Butifarra’s walls will be covered in giant colourful murals, while ingredients will be displayed in a long glass counter.

It is the latest in a growing number of Peruvian-inspired restaurants opening in London this year, including Chicama in Chelsea​ and Martin Morales' Casita Andina in Soho.

Butifarra will operate a no-reservations policy when it opens at 24 Rupert Street, London, W1d 6DQ.
